Junction improvements at Hornsey Park Road/ Mayes Road N22
Dear Resident or Trader,
As part of the Hornsey Park Neighbourhood programme for 2010/11, we have developed proposals to improve the Hornsey Park Road/ Mayes Road junction. These are designed to calm traffic, improve the facilities for pedestrians and improve the ‘look ‘of the area.
Full details of the proposed measures are illustrated on the plan overleaf, and consist of:
Raising the junction area, including the zebra crossing to the same level as the adjoining footways.
Widening the footways in Hornsey Park Road between the zebra crossing and the start of the parking bays.
Renewing adjoining footways and central island.
As part of the necessary legal process, this notification letter marks the start of a three week period during which we welcome your views, comments or objections. The closing date for your feedback is 24th March.
To have your say, please email us at email@example.com with ‘Hornsey Park Road’ in the subject line. Alternatively, you can write to us at the above address. If you have any questions about the scheme, please contact John Kingsford on 0208 489 1235.
All submissions will be considered carefully by the Council before a final decision is taken later in March on whether to proceed with the scheme, so we look forward to hearing from you.
Life on Hornsey Park Road has been plagued with problems including noise, pollution and crumbling pavements, on top of this there appears to be a lack of strategic vision for the future. Council Leader Peray Ahmet and a few of her fellow councillors came to discuss the issues with our representatives.
Eight of us got out before the rain last Saturday. We cut back a lot of growth at the Lavender Garden ready for winter. Most of what we cleared has now gone down for composting. By John Miles
The loss of trees is becoming an issue locally. The wonderful false acacia at the junction of Mayes Road and Coburg Road was removed because it ‘had a fungus’ - just in time for the planning application to build on the petrol station site beside it.

Sometime in the next week or so the work on Mayes Road will near completion. It will be a new benchmark for the look and feel of our neighbourhood and enhance its biodiversity. (photo: Luke 'Duke' Newcombe)
